Andy Robertson limps away with hoarding injury in Denmark’s win

5

Liverpool are facing a nervous wait for Andy Robertson’s condition after the Scottish left-back limped off the pitch late in his country’s 2-0 victory against Denmark on Monday.

Robertson, as team captain, had 79 minutes of action before ending up with an obvious hoarding injury that left him unable to complete the match.

He was seen moving relatively freely in Scotland’s honor roll after the match, but Robertson will now be sent for scans to determine how serious his problem is, and he now faces the possibility of joining Liverpool’s ever-growing list of injury concerns.

Should Robertson be sidelined, he would be replaced at the back by Greek national team player Kostas Tsimikas, who has been in impressive form since the start of the campaign.

The international break has not been very nice against Liverpool this time. Outfielder Sadio Mane suffered a suspected rib injury that continues to be monitored, and midfielder Jordan Henderson left England’s camp with an unspecified problem.

Jurgen Klopp is already without Roberto Firmino, Harvey Elliott, Thiago Alcantara and Joe Gomez, while both James Milner and Naby Keita are suffering from hamstring injuries that could keep them away for a while.

High-flying Arsenal will travel to Anfield on Saturday, so Klopp does not have much time for his injured stars to make a return.

Arsenal can actually beat Liverpool out of the top four with a victory, with Mikel Arteta’s team currently sitting two points behind the Reds in fifth place.

Liverpool are on track with two win-free matches and just two wins in their last six Premier League matches, so it is a must to return to winning against an Arsenal team that has not lost any of its last eight.
